Improve Your Comfort and Indoor Air Quality
Dry air inside your home during the winter months can cause your family to develop including dry noses, throats, lips, and skin. Andy’s Statewide installs whole-house humidifiers to keep your family healthy and comfortable in Detroit, MI. We can help you choose the best whole-house humidifier and install it for you.
Your house can be seriously impacted by dry air. Wallpaper can peel, paint can crack, and wood furniture can separate. Another result of dry air is those jolting shocks of static electricity. Even new homes can suffer from a lack of humidity and experience severe cracking and shrinking in wood floors and cabinets. Learn more about our home humidifier services and why you should seriously consider adding one to your home.
Professional Whole-House Humidifier Installation
The best way to combat the effects of dry winter air is with a humidifier for your whole house. Our team can install a furnace humidifier directly onto your existing HVAC system. The humidifier works by injecting humidity in the form of water vapor into your home’s air and then distributes it through your vents and ducts. Unlike portable humidifiers, the whole-house humidifier monitors the relative humidity in your home and precisely produces the right levels of moisture. Another advantage is that the filter only needs replacement about once a year, as opposed to the daily cleaning and disinfecting required by portable humidifier units.
Why Should You Install a Humidifier?
Your furnace keeps your home warm during the winter but heating your home can also dry it out. If the relative humidity in your home is not properly balanced, your family’s health and the structural integrity of your house can be at risk. A whole-home humidifier works with your furnace and efficiently distributes moisture throughout multiple living areas, improving your health, comfort, and energy bills.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a whole-home humidifier?
These devices increase the humidity levels in your home. When installed in your HVAC, a humidifier distributes moist air through the house, helping to keep the moisture levels in your house balanced and preventing dry air. Contacting us to be your whole-house humidifier installers means you can take advantage of all the benefits it provides.
What are the benefits of a whole-home humidifier?
Having a humidifier installed in your home provides you with a range of benefits, including reducing allergies and dry skin. It also helps prevent damage to your home and furniture while improving your overall health and comfort.
How does a humidifier work?
Humidifiers are highly effective. When connected to your home’s HVAC system, a humidifier adds moisture to the air before it is sent through your air ducts. There are a number of technologies used for this, including ultrasonic, steam and evaporative.
Can a humidifier help with allergies?
Humidifiers reduce the amount of dry air in your home, making allergy symptoms such as nasal congestion and irritation less severe. They also prevent dry, itchy skin.
Can a humidifier help with respiratory problems?
Yes — balancing the moisture in your indoor air helps soothe dry, irritated nasal passages and throats.
Will a humidifier damage my home or furniture?
Not at all. In fact, air that’s too dry can cause cracking in wooden floors and furniture. This means having a humidifier can help prevent damages to these elements of your home.
What kind of maintenance does a humidifier require?
Regular maintenance is important if you want to make sure you get the most performance out of your humidifier. Our experts can handle everything from changing the water panel and filter to cleaning the unit as recommended.
How long does it take a humidifier to work?
Once your unit is activated, it may take a few hours before you notice a difference, especially if you have a larger home. Once it starts working, however, you will experience an improvement in your humidity levels fairly soon.
Can a humidifier help me save energy?
Yes, because moist air feels warmer than dry air, which means you’ll reduce the amount of heating you’ll need to feel comfortable. You may be able to turn your thermostat down a few degrees and still feel warm.
Does a humidifier help keep my home cool?
No, because the added moisture in the air can actually make it feel warmer. The humidity retains heat, which is why you may want to adjust your usage during the summer.
Are there any risks associated with using a humidifier?
If you don’t keep your unit properly maintained, mold and bacteria can begin to grow inside of it. This can lead to a number of potential health issues, which is why it’s a good idea to call us for regular cleaning and maintenance.
Will using a humidifier raise my water bill?
Although it uses water, the amount a humidifier uses is minimal. You shouldn’t experience a significant increase in your monthly water bill.
